Security has always been important in IT, long before hacking (i.e. being where you shouldn’t be and doing things you are not permitted to do!), phishing (a type of email scam) and cyber attacks on high profile companies and their sensitive Customer data.
This module will consider the physical security built around software and IT systems and logical security, primarily concerned with protecting data from unauthorised access, misuse, loss or corruption.
As the web and the digital economy continue to grow and affect our lives more deeply, we all need to be more aware, cautious & vigilant. It’s a whole way of thinking and acting, not just passwords & PINs!
